Newbie lang din po mga sir!

I also have SGM Charles Jerry.

Satisfied naman po ako sa performance nya.

All parts are still stocks, wala pa po akong ina-upgrade.

Mag-2 months ko na po syang gamit, twice a week ride po.

40kms-50kms kada ride po, combination of smooth and rough road po.

Broke my zoom fork also (second fork for this month v2 yung isa)

in short di kaya ng fork yung rizal trails..

it broke in an "uneven" way.. nag creek pumalo naglock and di na absorb yung drop

which is like a feet and a half.. rolled for about 5 meters..

and then bam it gave way up..

di na ko nakapag adjust since downhill yung trail..

semplang na....

Three of my bike buddies are using SGM Charles Jerry mountainbikes (one of the bikes used to be mine). Bought from Quiapo early 2010, so around 1 year na ang mga bikes. Ok naman sila for its price of P 6,500.00.

Have taken these bikes to various trails around Metro Manila several times with no problem, including Maarat, Licao Licao, Antenna in Binangonan, Fort Bonifacio and the shore lines of Laguna Lake during summer. Have also taken it to Daraitan-Laiban Dam in Tanay, Rizal.

Matibay ang frame. One of the bikes survived a 50-ft. accidental fall sa bangin (di kasama ang rider) -- buo pa rin maliban sa na-otsong rim sa harap at tumabinging fork.

Kung di lang ako na-infect ng upgraditis, I will still be using this SGM bike.

Advice lang if you are to use this bike in trails, change the stock forks with a better one for a more comfortable and controllable ride.

Default Re: SGM Mountain bike brands?

I'm using 2011 SGM Charles Jerry bike. I'm using this as my commuter bike from house to office. I sometimes go to Roxas blvd for a night bike exercise. Been using it daily (total of 2-3hrs per day). Sobrang nakakatipid ako sa pamasahe nung nag start akong mag bike around 2 weeks ago. I can also go to different places while exercising.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...MShimano01.jpg

So far here are my observations:

Pedal: So far ang napansin ko lang is panget yung pedal nya. Nakakasugat siya kasi matalas yung mga ipin nya. Tapos mukhang mabilis pa masira. I already replaced mine with MOB pedal worth 380 php.

Shifter: Medyo ndi ok alignment ng rear shifter nung akin.

Crank: Ok naman siya for city use as daily commuter. Pero may part dun na plastic. So kung mag trail ka tapos natamaan ng bato ito, malamang masisira yung plastic part dun. Pero kung city use lang naman ok na rin to.

Fork: Stiff siya, I'm planning to upgrade this soon. Pero for now, tyaga tyaga muna since commuter bike lang naman sya. Hindi pa naman ako nag tatry mag trail.

Frame: Good design. Everytime dala ko to at nakakadaan ako sa mga matataong lugar, head turner ako ng mga nadadaanan ko hehe. Medyo mabigat siya pero kung newbie ka kagaya ko, good for training rin ito.

Tires: Not bad, tires are fast but it seems like mabilis siyang mabutas as what mentioned by other people. Madulas rin siya especially pag basa or maputik ang lugar. Pero for dry weather ok na ok siya iharurot sa kalsada hehe.

Brake: For me ok lang naman ang mech disk brake niya. Medyo may konting squeek sound yung rear break nya pero for me ok lang naman ito. Timpla timpla lang rin sa pag preno para ndi mabilis mapudpod yung break. So far makapit naman preno ng akin, mabilis ako magpatakbo kahit sa mga masisikip at matataong lugar (Divisoria Mall Binondo area) dahil madalas naghahabol ako ng oras dahil malalate na sa office, pero never pa ako nabigo ng break ko hehe.

Saddle: At first sobrang sakit ng pwet ko dito haha! Maybe because I'm still new to this hobby. Pero right now sanay na pwet ko hehe. But still I'm planning to upgrade this soon to a more comfortable seat for a longer joy ride.

My conclusion:
For a total price of 6.8k wala na ako reklamo since mura naman ang price nito and satisfied naman ako sa usage ko sa kanya. For city commute and exercise ok naman sya. For joy ride ok rin siya. Been using this for a night biking joy ride with a friend for around 15km and ok naman siya. Minsan solo night riding ako from binondo to roxas blvd baywalk para mag ikot ikot lang sa tabi ng dagat.

In terms of design, hands down ako sa kanya. For that cheap price, para akong naka ferrari dahil everytime dadaan ako sa mga lugar na matao, lagi ako head turner hehe. Siguro dahil na rin sa headlight ko at tail light, Tapos yung pito ko sa gulong nilagyan ko rin ng firefly led light. Kagabi nga eh nung pauwi ako galing sa house ng friend ko sa Binondo, may mga sumisigaw at tuwang tuwa nung nakita ako nag bibike at dumaan sa kanila, sabi nila "Ui astig o... Tronix!" lolz!

Siguro for light trail biking ok naman siya, pero kung hardcore ka gumamit sa trail, eh better upgrade some of the parts especially the fork.

got myself also a SGM intensity bike : ) for a price of 6900

Ive been using it for commuting everyday to work.

pinalitan ko lang ung buong crank set ng shimano non series, plastic kasi ung crank arm nun stock crank.

Durable tong SGM bike siguradong tatagal, ung crank arm lang kailangan palitan plastic kasi

Bought my built SGM charles jerry edition last week sa quiapo. Ok naman xa para sa akin. Ginagamit ko xa pang exercise sa UP.

Most parts are non series shimano

Overall the bike is good and cool for its price.

I can say that the SGM bikes are good entry level bikes but definitely I need to upgrade if gusto ko mag trails.

Ok naman ang parts sir pero how much does it cost? Baka for that price may mabili ka pang ibang MTB na mas maganda.
